In order to complete the legal framework for bilateral cooperation, the Deputy PM urged the speeding up of negotiations and signing of important agreements such as those on Double Taxation Avoidance, Investment Encouragement and Protection, banking cooperation and visa exemption for diplomatic passport holders.

Deputy PM Minh also proposed that Sudan create more favourable conditions for the national oil and gas group PetroVietnam and the military-run telecommunications enterprise Viettel to invest in Sudan.

He said that the Vietnamese side is ready to implement the second phase of the joint project to promote the cultivation of rice and a number of other plants in Sudan, which has so far proved effective.

For his part, the official from Sudan said his country attaches much importance to the multifaceted cooperation with Vietnam.

He suggested that Vietnam continues the cooperation with his country, while sharing its experience in agriculture and acquaculture.

On the occasion, Kamal-Eddin Ismail Saeed informed his host that Sudan will grant 10 Arabian language study scholarships to Vietnamese students.

Sudan supports Vietnam’s candidacy to the United Nations Security Council for the 2020-2021 term, the diplomat affirmed.

During the political consultations with Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Phuong Nga, the two sides reiterated that they will maintain their mutual support at international forums, while further boosting the role that both foreign ministries play in reviewing and stepping up the implementation of signed agreements.

Both sides also agreed on directions and measures to bolster their cooperation in the future, especially in promising areas such as oil and gas, telecommunications, agriculture and footwear.
